Coal Canyon (Magnificent Hummingbird) to Washington Park (Surf Scoter)

October 28, 2014

Another beautiful fall day, temperatures in the low 60s, mild winds.

I had to drive up to Coal Canyon (Boulder County) to see the female Magnificent Hummingbird!  Fantastic find!  Thanks Adam Jack for his hospitality!

Afterwards, I walked around Golden, centered on Ford and 16th Streets.  In past years, Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers have been found in the area.  None was found today; however, it could be a little early.  They usually show up in late November and December.

My next stop was Washington Park (Denver).  The female Surf Scoter was swimming around the south end of Grasmere Lake.  Thanks to Joe Roller for reporting the duck!

My day ended once again along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams).  No owls were found this afternoon.
